What Do You Want For Christmas?

Posted: Monday, December 10, 2007
In this message preached on December 9, we took a look at what it would look like if we focused our giving more toward Jesus this Christmas and made it less about ourselves.

One of the texts that we looked at was Matthew 2:1-12. It is the story of the Magi coming to see the newborn Jesus. They came to worship Him, and they worshiped Him through their giving to Him. My two main points were, The greatest gift we can give is our worship, and the greatest form of our worship is our giving.

May we remember, we are never more like Jesus, than when we give.

Is Jesus Christ Lord...of Your Hardships?

Posted: Monday, April 02, 2007
This message was preached on April 1, 2007 and was part of a series Pastor Steve McCracken has been preaching on Jesus being Lord of each area of our lives. You will find the other messages in this series here.

The text I used was Ecclesiates 7:1-14. In it we enter into Sololmon's journey of discovering that there is much more to gain in the hardships of life than in the easy going, good times in life.

Hope you enjoy my introduction. It was an April Fools joke that I pulled on everyone and served as a great opener and illustration for my message.

Don't Waste Your Life...Do Something

Posted: Monday, February 26, 2007
On Sunday, February 25, we spent the morning debriefing the REAL.LIFE Exhibit that many from our body went through just the day before. We also debriefed the 30 Hour Famine that many of our students participated in that weekend.

The service served to both allow us to share with one another the things God had shown us, as well as look at ways that we as a community of people can respond to the great needs of our world.

We have combined the sharing from both services on this recording. You will hear from myself, as well as Pastor Steve McCracken and Pastor Jon Knapp.
